Went here for gelato/coffee/drink after dinner every night. So authentic! One of our favourite things, loved it!

This is forties, this is fifties. This is a beautifully laid out and well stocked bar, a sweet shop, a long restaurant, a chocolate shop, a wine and spirits shop, a patisserie - it is so good, old fashioned and upscale - it is indescribable!...More

Tucked behind the large and sumptuous coffee bar is the restaurant, more like a wine bar, especially in appearance but with very good food and nice choice of wines. It is comfortable, unpretentious but the food is very high quality.

DeFilla is in a great location. The drinks and aperitifs are amazing and the staff are very friendly especially Ivano! Highly recommend coming here if in Chiavari. The fact that it is so popular with the locals shows the quality.

This is my favourite restaurant in Chiavari. The food is exquisite. The service is perfect. The atmosphere is comfortable. I have eaten here about six times. I've only had fish but there is always a meat dish. Mr Rossi is the proprietor and wine expert.

Located in the center of Chiavari. The place has been there for ages and is very well known Great place to just make a stop for an aperitivo. Or better yet stop by for either an espresso, cappuccino and some desserts.

Situated in the centre of Chiavari, has a good long standing reputation locally but staff can be rude and standoffish if not recognised as one of their "regular customers". Shame because their own produced fresh cakes and ice-cream are actually very nice, as well as...More

Don't miss Defilla for coffee, any time of the day. You'll find a beautifully maintained Liberty-style interior, with pleasant baristi ready to bring you an excellent coffee, no matter which type you order. An aperitivo at Defilla is always served up with a smile and...More
